ok so I"ve been wearing my ring for a few hours and it's turning me green.  Any ideas on how to fix it?  I think there should be something you can coat it with.....

and i act like a child, and i'm immature,
and i'm filled with doubt, and i'm insecure.
sometimes it creeps up on me,
and before i know it i'm lost at sea.
but no matter how far i row,
i always find my way back home.
but i don't know what i've been waiting for...

For rings that turn me green i just coat the inside bit with clear nail polish. Also, the ring is fabulous!

Copper jewelry turns skin green... I don't really know why. Coating it with something like clear nail polish would probably do the trick.

When copper comes in contact with water, it oxidizes(rusts) and that reaction creates a green color, unlike iron that rusts reddish brown.
